    • 1150
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions
    • Many Missals, Bibles and Psalters of the 12th century were written in this fine, bold script. It was a revived form of the 9th century carolingian minuscule. In the absence of miniatures and decoration, it is difficult to assign a manuscript in...

    • 1175
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions

    • 1200
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions
    • Graduals are the books containing the chants for the celebration of the mass. English manuscripts of this early date and small size are rare. This volume, with the uncertain strokes in the script, seems to indicate that the transcriber was...

    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions

    • 1250
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions
    • The line ending of a fish, elongated or shortened as the space required, and the grinning expression of the fish emblem have in some book circles given these German Psalters the nickname "Laughing Carp" Psalters. The fish, as is well known, was one...

    • 1250
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions

    • 1250
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions

    • 1250
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions
    • It is usually difficult to dinstinguish the miniature or portable Bibles made by the young Dominican friars in England from those written in France. At times the colophon tells us that a book was executed in the Sorbonne, the newly founded school...
    • Psalter (Psalterium). [leaf from Ege medieval manuscripts]

    • 1250
    • Fifty original leaves from medieval manuscripts: Western Europe XII-XVI century Ege Descriptions
    • Small Psalters of this period are comparatively rare, since Psalters were used primarily in the church services and not by the layman. Here, the letters and ornament still retain all the rigidity of the previous century and give no indication of...
